Zane Zamenski will return as Corona del Sol's football coach and physical education teacher next week.

According to a Tempe Union High School District letter released late Thursday afternoon, the district "concluded that were instances of inappropriate language and comments used by the coach in recent weeks," and that "steps have been taken to address and correct this employee's behavior.";

The letter did not detail what steps are or will be involved, only that its with the Governing Board policy involving staff ethics.

Messages left with Zamenski, athletic director Dan Nero and district athletic director Ken Salas weren't immediately returned.

Zamenski was on a paid leave of absence by the Tempe Union High School District and "assigned to home" since mid-July after the district received an anonymous letter on behalf of 13 players and their parents alleging inappropriate and lewd comments made by Zamenski toward his players.

The district conducted a two-week investigation which included interviews with more than 30 football players, parents and staff.

The letter says Zamenski will have a meeting with all football players and families on Aug. 2 at 6 p.m. in the Corona del Sol auditorium. He will return to the team on Aug. 3 and conduct a players-only meeting prior to the team's first practice.

Corona del Sol opens its season on Aug. 27 against Desert Mountain.

Zamenski was hired by Corona del Sol in early February after longtime coach Gary Venturo retired. Zamenski, the third coach in school history, spent the previous two seasons at Phoenix South Mountain, The Jaguars were 8-3 in 2008 and 3-7 last season.

The football team went to a camp in Snowflake this week without Zamenski. Aztec assistants were handling all football-related activities in his absence.
